Question Nos. 114 – 119 are based on the following:

Almo Company manufactures and sells adjustable canopies that attach to motor homes and trailers. The market covers new unit purchases as well
as replacement canopies. Almo developed its 2017 business plan based on the assumption that canopies would sell at a price of P400 each. The
variable costs for each canopy were projected at P200, and the annual fixed costs were budgeted at P100,000. Almo’s after–tax profit objective
was P240,000; the company’s effective tax rate is 40 percent.

While Almo’s sales usually rise during the second quarter, the May financial statements reported that sales were not meeting expectations. For the
first five months of the year, only 350 units had been sold at the established price, with variable costs as planned, and it was clear that the 2017
after-tax profit projection would not be reached unless some actions were taken. Almo’s president assigned a management committee to analyze
the situation and develop several alternative courses of action. The following mutually exclusive alternatives, labeled A, B, and C, were presented
to the president.

Reduce the sales price by P40. The sales organization forecast that with the significantly reduced sales price, 2,700 units can be sold during the
remainder of the year. Total fixed and variable unit costs will stay as budgeted.

Lower the variable costs per unit by P25 through the use of less expensive materials and slightly modified manufacturing techniques. The sales
price will also be reduced by P30, and sales of 2,200 units for the remainder of the year are forecast.

Cut fixed costs by P10,000, and lower the sales price by 5 percent. Variable costs per unit will be unchanged. Sales of 2,000 units are expected for
the remainder of the year.

cxiv.Assuming no changes were made to the selling price or cost structure, how many units must Almo sell to break even?
A. 167 C. 500
B. 250 D. 1,700

cxv.Assuming no changes were made to the selling price or cost structure, how many units must Almo sell to achieve its after-tax profit objective?
A. 1,250 C. 2,000
B. 1,700 D. 2,500

cxvi.If management decides to reduce the selling price by P40, what will Almo's after-tax profit be?
A. P157,200 C. P241,200
B. P160,800 D. P301,200

cxvii.If the management can reduce the variable cost per unit by P25 through the use of less expensive materials and slightly modified manufacturing
techniques, with the sales price reduced by P30, and sales of 2,200 units for the remainder of the year are forecast, the amount of expected
income for the year was:
A. P239,400 C. P241,200
B. P204,000 D. P399,000

cxviii.How much would be the expected income for the year if the management cut fixed costs by P10,000, and lower the sales price by 5 percent,
with variable costs per unit unchanged and sales of 2,000 units are expected for the remainder of the year?
A. P239,400 C. P241,200
B. P204,000 D. P399,000

cxix.If the sales price is reduced by 6.25 percent starting June 1, an analysis indicates that 2,500 unit sales can be made if the company has to spent
for additional advertising. What is the maximum amount of advertising cost that the company can spend and still the profit objective is
A. P35,000 C. P15,000
B. P22,500 D. P 7,500

xxviii . Answer: C
To analyze mixed cost using high-low method, the analyst always identifies and uses the lowest and the highest
levels of activities. The reason is that the activity presumably causes costs, so the analyst would like to use data
that reflects the greatest possible variation in activity.

xxix . Answer: D
The question does not require a computation. R2 (goodness of fit) indicates the percentage of the variation in the
dependent variable (cost) that is explained by variation in the independent variable (activity). The adjusted R 2
varies from zero to 100%, and the higher the percentage, the better.
xxx . Answer: A
Variable cost 20,000 x 3.5 P70,000
Fixed cost 3,500
Total cost P73,500
xxxi . Answer: B
Contribution Margin = Fixed costs
= P15,000

(Contribution Margin/Unit Sales) + Variable cost per unit

= Desired Minimum Sales Price

(P15,000 ÷ 3,000) + (P7,500 ÷ 3,000) 7.50

xxxii . Answer: C
Unit contribution margin (P50 - P30) P 20.00
Additional profit (500 x P20) P10,000

After the break-even level, the amount of profit equals the unit contribution margin multiplied by the number of
units sold in excess of break-even units.

The candidates should remember that the profit increases by the amount of contribution margin brought by
additional units sold.

xxxiii . Answer: A
Cost of dinner P 70.00

Cost to be charged P420.00

xxxiv .Answer: B
The number of units required to earn the target profit is equal to the sum of fixed expenses and the target profit
divided by the unit contribution margin. The number of units required to earn the target net profit is:
(P78,000 + P42,000) ÷ P12 10,000
xxxv . Answer: A

Current break-even:
Pesos: (P32,000 ÷ 0.40) P80,000
Units: [P32,000 ÷ P6) 5,333
Contribution margin per unit: P15 x 0.40P 6.00

Additional units to cover additional fixed costs:

(P32,000 x 0.3)  P6 1,600

Alternative solution:
New breakeven units (P32,000 x 1.3) ÷ P6 6,933
Less current breakeven units 5,333
Increase in breakeven units 1,600

xxxvii . Answer: A
The amount of contribution margin per unit is constant within a relevant range. The amount of profit is increased
by the amount of unit contribution margin.

Contribution margin per unit:

fixed cost ÷ breakeven unit sales 50,000 ÷ 5,000 P10.00
At breakeven point, the profit is zero. Therefore, the profit at a level of 5,001 units will be P10 which is the amount
of contribution provided by the unit (one unit) in excess of breakeven point.

xxxviii Answer: A
CMR = Fixed cost/Sales
= 100,000/800,000 = 12.50%

Profit = (1,200,000 – 800,000)0.125 P50,000

The amount of sales that provides profit should be the sales revenues above the break even sales.

Alternative solution:

xlvi . Answer: A
Total peso sales required 120,000 ÷ (0.25 – 0.1) 800,000*
Less prior sales 400,000
Required increase in sales 400,000

*Peso sales required to earn profit stated as percentage of sales (ROS):

S = [FC + (ROSS)]  CMR
(CMR S) = [FC + (ROSS)]
(CMR S) - (ROSS) = FC
(CMR – ROS) S = FC

S = FC  (CMR – ROS)

xlvii . Answer: A
Contribution margin 50,000 x (5-3.50) 75,000
Less: additional profit (250,000 x 0.10) 25,000

Selling price = P3.50 ÷ 0.70 P5.00

xlviii . Answer: C
A shorter calculation of finding the amount of sales is to divide breakeven sales by (1 – MSR)
Sales = P600,000  (1 – 0.2) P750,000

An alternative solution to find sales is to compute the profit margin.

Profit margin = Contribution margin ratio x margin of safety ratio.

Profit margin = 20% x 40% 8%
Sales = Profit ÷ Profit margin

Sales (60,000 ÷ 0.08) P750,000

xlix . Answer: A
Peso sales = FC/(CMR - ROS)
= P210,000/(0.40 - 0.10) P700,000
CMR = 40%

A long computation of required sales uses the following equation:

S = P210,000 + 0.10S

0.40S = P210,000 + 0.10S

0.40S - 0.10S = P210,000
S = P210,000/(0.40 – 0.10)
S = P700,000

l . Answer: C

Unit Contribution Margin, Touring:
80.00 – 52.80 P27.20

cx . Answer: A
Indifference point in peso sales:
0.4S – P369,600 = 0.34S – P316,800
0.06S = 52,800
S = P880,000

cxi . Answer: D
Breakeven sales, Mountaineering:
369,600 ÷ 35.20 = 10,500
Required contribution margin – Touring
316,800 ÷ 10,500 = 30.17
Present contribution margin – Touring 27.20
Required decrease in variable cost per unit 2.97

cxii . Answer: A
New breakeven point: 348,480 ÷ 32.48 10,730

New UCM, Touring: 27.20 + (52.80 x 0.1) = 32.48

New Fixed costs: 316,800 x 1.1 = 348,480

cxiii . Answer: C
The indifference point in number of pairs is 6,600. Inasmuch that the expected level is 12,000 units, it is better to
sell Mountaineering because it has high leverage than the touring model. Once the indifference point is exceeded,
the one with the higher contribution margin (leverage) has the advantage over the one with the lower contribution

cxiv .Answer: C
Breakeven units = Fixed costs  Unit contribution margin
